have the composite euro zone out for us. on the urow zone p mi, 47.6. it was 47.2 was the full cost, and then slightly better than we thought on that. the july manufacturing was 44.1. that was 45.3 was the forecast. so the new orders, 42.9, that's weaker than 43.5 in july. the flash composite pmi is 46.4 and the manufacturing component dragging that down versus the 46.5 we might have expected and 46.4 in june. so up matching the june level. joining us in the studio is chris williamson, chief economist at market which helped to compile the data. thanks for joining us. let's kick it off with the german number there, because that's weaker aacross the board than we might have thought, and the new orders contracted for the third month in a row. no signs of any stabilization in a contractionary levels. >> indeed the contraction is getting more severe. that's the key to all surveys out this morning. that german number is coming down. there's some blurring of the data by what's going on in france at the moment. the only area that we saw across the euro zone that saw any sort of improvement

, thanks very much, indeed, for being with us. look, we still got german manufacturers. despite the fact that we had some moves last week on the eu sum it, i don't suppose we'll be turning around the economics any time soon? >> no, but i think you've always got to be a bit careful when there's a lot of very negative headlines going around. sometimes they can get a little bit detached from the economy. >> richard, we're also seeing some differences across the region. anything that jumps out to you that we didn't expect? >> i think probably the concern is germany. basically, the model is some of these peripheries are in real trouble. so i think german pmi down in the mid 40s is a bit of a concern. it could get quite nasty for the whole region. >> i think the thing is is whether that reflects the global slowdown, as well. >> yeah, well, maybe this reflects the fact that german manufacturers have become a little bit worried abpaying for everybody else's dinner. maybe the higher taxes or the damage from the euro zone affecting their business. i think it was very positive, again, last wee

regions. caroline has now moved from valencia to mercia and joins us again. what's the situation and how are they tapping this new liquidity fund? >> well, the situation here is clearly equally bad. because the president of the regional government here indicated in a newspaper interview over the weekend that he too may tap the liquidity fund to cover its financing fund for the second half the year. financing needs for the third quarter stand at around 430 million euros and he may ask for 200 or 300 million euros. it may not sound much especially when you compare that to the refinancing needs of catalonia and valencia. if you look at the small size of this region because it's one of the smallest regions in all of spain it's massive. also if you look at the debt levels and the deficit to gdp ratios over the last year, those are enormous. the deficit to gdp was at 4.3% last year. three times the target. this year the target is 1.4%. nobody believes this region can meet that target. i should say, though, this region is quite creative about getting revenues in. the reports out there that

tomorrow and second quarter gdp figures on friday. joining us now nor is associate director at taiji. walk us your biggest concern. >> clearly it's the eurozone and the united states, but just briefly on china you mentioned that the inflation data there was relatively slow. not necessarily. inflation itself, inflation or deflation doesn't really show necessarily how much the economy is growing or contracting. i mean certainly we know anyway that the purchasing managers index has been or producing price index as been going better. in part that's due to a drop in commodity prices so doesn't necessarily show you that the economy itself is slowing that much. in manufacturing as we know the figures for june were just about 50% but still that's not contracting either. in the u.s. who can be surprised that there's some issue with manufacturing growth, there's a lot of going to europe and united states. in june the service sector numbers, they were very strong and in fact you had the number coming in at 67.7, fastest growth in three months and 43% of the chinese economy is a servicing sector
